The first-generation BMW 1 Series hatchback, be it a three-dour or a five-dour, wasn’t exactly appealing from the styling point of view. The 1 Series Coupe, on the other hand, was a completely different story. Marketed as a successor to the iconic 2002 model, which was built between 1968 and 1975, the 1 Series Coupe received a much-praised M Performance version that carried the 1M moniker. The coupe was discontinued last year, as BMW was readying its successor, the 2 Series Coupe .
Although production of the 1 Series was halted about eight months ago, the Coupe, as well as its high-performance 1M cousin, are still popular among BMW enthusiasts. Some have labeled it as the best vehicle Munich has made in the 21st century, while others have seen its launch as a sign that BMW wants to return to its roots.
Each of them are cool in their own way, but none are as intriguing as the one developed by the folks over at TJ Fahreugdesign.
